‘Kurbaan’ follows Avantika Ahuja – Kareena’s character, a psychology professor from the US, who falls in love with Ehsaan Khan/Khalid, a university professor from Mumbai – played by Saif Ali Khan. The crux of the film is terrorism where Avantika takes the center stage as the wife of a terrorist who married her to obtain residency in the United States in order to carry out terror attacks in the US.

The film was helmed by Rensil D’Silva and produced by Karan Johar. It also starred Om Puri, Vivek Oberoi, Dia Mirza and Kirron Kher in key roles.

Even though it got decent responses from the audience, the film was declared a flop by Box Office India.

On the work front, Kareena will be next seen in director Sujoy Ghosh’s next thriller film based on the book ‘The Devotion of Suspect X.’ She will also star in director Hansal Mehta’s next untitled film.

Saif will be next seen in ‘Adipurush,’ a pan-India alongside Prabhas and Kriti Sanon.
